Hacksaw Ridge: a true story
Summit Entertainment ,
The extraordinary true story of Desmond Doss, who, in Okinawa during the bloodiest battle of WWII, saved 75 men without firing or carrying a gun. He was the only American soldier in WWII to fight on the front lines without a weapon, as he believed that while the war was justified, killing was nevertheless wrong. As an army medic, he singlehandedly evacuated the wounded from behind enemy lines, braving fire while tending to soldiers and being wounded by a grenade and hit by snipers.
